with one another. and i think doing so gives us the history of what strom thurmond's america looks like, and else is rethink not only was going on in the south but was going on in the national conservative political realm as well. rethink and strom thurmond helps us think modern conservatism to a history i think that is too often thurmond is left out of because we only remember him as this kind of cartoonish racist figure from the deep south. let me read you, an excerpt from the introduction. one reason we forget about strom thurmond is because he was so doggone old. right? [laughter] thurmond predated the founding generation of what is commonly understood as the modern conservative movement. he was the closest friend to william f. buckley senior and william f. buckley, jr., the founding editor of "national review" and one of the central figures of modern conservatism. buckley senior be restored in india government state in camden south carolina became a friend and regular correspondent with the then governor thurmond would have had no problem identifying as a strom thurmond american. i

compliment. >> he made the point that ideas matter. it also matter in national security. america realized it could not win the cold war if it still had a scandalous segregation in the south. winning the civil rights battle at home was a precondition of winning the fight politically across the globe. i think looking from the outside there is the same danger now. when i go to china and i criticize them for their lack of democracy, they say but we are educating all our people. you did not do that in britain and america. when i had been in the middle east, and talk to people on the edge of radicalism, they say look at the protest in justices in your british and european and american nations. we would never allow that under an islamic state. these are self-serving versions of the truth. the allies even. nevertheless, they have power. i wanted to what extent american political leaders can articulate the case that as long as there is inequality driven by education in america, that america provides bill leadership that the world needs is compromise. one of the things it reminds me of its argument
to build a new airport south of the metropolitan area of chicago. >> airports are the one thing we do in america that people get when it comes to the partnerships. there's always criticism of this, criticism that the governments don't have money, there are criticisms that governments don't make the rht decisions. the city of chicago famously struggled with its public/private partnership on its parking meters in 2008. the city leased its system to a group of private investigators. they did a poor job of managing the transition. there were steep rate hikes and confusion and it resulted in the downgrade of the city's credit rating. i know that's not one of your projects. >> no, that's right. >> what are the lessons of that type of thing for your own initiatives? >> you got to be very careful. you know, the city also did one with the skyway, a bridge across from chicago to indiana. that was done in a better fashion. if it's not carefully done, it can really backfire. so that's why we take each step and do it in a very reasonable sound way. we're embarking on this. this is brand new for ou
determination and our numbers, we shall splinter the segregated south into a thousand pieces, put them together in the image of god and democracy. we must say, "wake up, america! wake up!" for we cannot stop, and we will not and cannot be patient. amy goodman: that remarkable speech that you gave on august 28th, 1963. you were the youngest speaker at the march on washington. you spoke before dr. king. rep. john lewis: i spoke number six. dr. king was the last speaker. he spoke number 10. that day, when a. philip randolph introduced me, and he said, "and i present to you, young john lewis, national chairman of the student nonviolent coordinating committee," i looked to my right, i saw many other young people sort of cheering me on; looked to my left, and i saw young people up in the trees trying to get a better view of the crowd; then i looked straight ahead, and i said to myself, "this is it. i must do my best." and that's what i tried to do. when i was working on the speech, i was reading a copy of the new york times, and i saw a group of black women in southern africa carrying signs saying, "
of the controversy? that would still be sacred ground. 100 miles north, a thousand miles south, 2000 miles west. it's all holy. i believe every inch of america is sacred from sea to shining sea. i believe we make it wholly by who we welcome and the how we relate to each other. call it my muslim eyes on the american project. we made you different nations and tribes that you may come to know which other says the chronic there's no better place on earth in america to enact that vision. it is part of the definition of our nation. i say democracy is only of use their that if they pass on an come to its fruit and manners in the highest forms of interaction between men and their beliefs and religion, literature, schools same witness. moralism is not a birthright of america. it's a responsibility. pluralism does not fall from the sky. it does not rise up from the ground. people have fought for pluralism. people have kept the promise. america is exceptional not because there's magic in our soil, but because there's fierce determination in our citizens. the greatness of america lies not in being more i'm lik
